About the Book

Teaching youth can be challenging and is often difficult. You need to know your subject but more importantly know your students. Do you like young people? Would you want to teach Bible lessons from the viewpoint of a teenager and encourage their faith? This forty-eight-lesson guide helps you focus as a religious teacher to youth. Youth Track identifies stories about young people in the Bible, including related scripture references for those stories. It presents suggested thoughts and current-day questions to involve your students. This is not a cookie-cutter guide but a solid place to start, since teaching kids can be hard work. Although this guide was written as a series of weekly lessons, it is also appropriate in other situations. Select just the New Testament stories for a shorter period. At special times of the year such as Christmas or Easter, use the stories about those celebrations. If you know your students, pick stories that you can relate to their day-to-day lives. Youth are very special. With the help of this guide, use your abilities, your knowledge, and your experiences in whatever way you can to encourage their Christian growth and faith.

About the Author

As a children’s teacher for thirty years in a church environment, Harold Williams developed a series of lessons about youth in the Bible from Genesis through Revelation. Success teaching in that first year encouraged him to expand, learn more stories, and formalize a leader’s workbook for junior high and senior high students. He presents a different approach to teaching the Bible with the goal of learning about our Christian heritage as followers of Christ.
